What you think I am, I become.

At Raising Expectations, we believe children will either live up to or down to the expectations set for them. We know for many youth living in underserved or disenfranchised communities, lack of support and positive role models can often result in poor, misguided or even damaging life choices. As a stable alternative, we create an atmosphere of support, encouragement and broadened life experiences to prepare those with the heaviest of odds stacked against them for success. We do this by offering a wide range of programming that addresses their social, academic and mental needs.

We also believe change happens over time and in order to help children prepare for success, we must begin working with them at a young age and continue these relationships until the completion of their academic careers.
